We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
The theme for this week’s Quotography is Silence. And there is a lot of silence around 7am on a Sunday morning.
If you didn’t know if was happening, you might have slept right through it. Or never noticed it. But in the silence of late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, the earth was passing through a stream of dust left over by Halley’s Comet. It’s called the Orionid meteor shower and occurs every October. I never saw anything last year, and stayed up past midnight hoping to see some last Saturday night. I even set my alarm to get up at dark-thirty and watch the sky Sunday morning. It wasn’t until I went to get the paper at 7am before church that I was awed by meteor trails all over the sky above our house.
It reinforced the realization that we are only small, small specks in this vastness of the universe.
